Easy 5 minute Keto Noatmeal – Low Carb Cereal for Breakfast

I love having a bowl of keto oatmeal (also called keto noatmeal or low carb porridge) topped with fresh berries and almonds flakes for a perfect low carb breakfast. It’s ready in 5 minutes and super easy to prepare.

Low Carb Oatmeal only 5g net carbs

It’s such an easy and quick recipe, the perfect keto replacement for the classic oatmeal that is high in carbs.

You’ll be surprised that even the texture it’s similar to the classic oatmeal bowl. I discovered this recipe a few months ago, and since then I am making it almost daily.


This keto breakfast it’s so filling and the serving size it’s so huge that sometimes I eat half in the morning and use the rest as a low carb snack.

The ingredients are super cheap and easy to find. It is also super fast to make.

How to make the keto noatmeal?

There are two methods to make keto cereal and both of them are super fast.

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes until thickened.
  2. Add all the ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for about 2 minutes or until it gets the desired consistency.

You can make this vegan keto oatmeal, by simply substituting the butter with coconut oil.

If you are looking for a low-calorie noatmeal, you can leave out the butter and it will still be as good and creamy. On a ketogenic diet, you have to increase the fat intake and this a great way.

If you make the recipe I would be delighted to see how your keto noatmeal turned out!

After you make the keto noatmeal base, you can add any toppings you want. Make it healthier and nutritious by adding hemp hearts, hemp seeds, chia seeds, almond flakes, MCT oil, protein powder.

Making this at night and having it ready in the morning it’s also super helpful for busy days. You can reheat it in the microwave or eat it with extra coconut milk on top. I love the coconut milk touch, it makes me feel like eating real cereal.

Ingredients for the keto oatmeal

The main ingredients in this recipe are coconut flour, flax meal, and unsweetened coconut milk. In fact, you can use any nut milk you love, but make sure it has no sugars added.

The coconut flour will absorb all the liquid, making the noatmeal thick and delicious, while the flax meal will give a tasty nutty flavor.

    • Quinoa is not a keto food, so I don't recommend using it. As for the almond flour, you should definitely try to see how much you need to make the noatmeal thicker. I'd say you'll have to use 6-7 tbsp of almond flour instead of the coconut flour.

  1. I've tried to eliminate much of the flax from my diet because I've read it lowers testosterone in men. Is there any substitution for the flax?

  2. This was absolutely delicious!!! Since I've been doing Keto, I've missed hot cereals, but this really hit the spot! I love Cream of Wheat and Malt O Meal even more than oatmeal and that is what this cereal reminded me of. Delicious, creamy yumminess!!! Thank you!!!

  3. This was so good. I also felt like it was more of a cream of wheat texture and loved it. I doubled the recipe. It was fast and delish. I added frozen wild blueberries at the end and cut the amount of swerve for my husband who likes things less sweet than I. Sooooo good. Thank you!!

  4. I was dubious about making yet another low carb recipe that might be "so-so" but decided to give it a try since I had all the ingredients on hand from other moderate successes. It was great! I can't wait to try it with blueberries tomorrow. And I'll be looking around the site for more recipes to try.

    • I really happy you liked the recipe. It one of my favorite breakfast and sometimes I am so obsessed with it and I eat oatmeal even for dinner. It's so good with dark chocolate and peanut butter on top.

  5. I am new to the Keto diet. I found your website thru Pinterest. I want to thank you for all the work you do to help out us Keto dieters. I'm really hoping this becomes more permanent but I am overwhelmed with all the cooking from scratch. Looking at all the nutritional information on the backs of packages…..I had no idea how much CARBS I was eating.
    I've made a couple of your recipes already and am so glad I've found a breakfast item that isn't bacon and eggs. With heart disease and high cholesterol, I should not be eating that every day.
    What is the purpose of the flaxseed meal? Is it more beneficial to have it in the mixture than not? (i don't have any) and if I use unsweetened almond mild, will it affect the carb count too much? Again, thank u so much for your site. I've enjoyed reading and trying your recipes.

    • Well hello and thanks for such a kind message. It really makes me happy that you found inspiration in my recipes. Flaxseed meal is high in omega-3 fatty acids, high in fiber and antioxidants. It also gives a nice flavor to the oatmeal making it taste closer to the classic one. Both coconut flour and flax meal soak well the liquids well making the recipe thick and creamy. As for the milk, you can use any unsweetened one you have on hand. I will try my best to post more and more of my favorite keto recipes. Thank you again for being so kind.

  6. ARe the calories correct? Two tablespoons of butter alone are 200 calories. ANd coconut milk is 110 for a 1/4 cup.

  7. I added all the macros up for the ingredients/brands that I had here at home, and the macros are much different than the ones listed. I ended up with 41 grams of fat, 6.3 Grams net carbs, and 9 G protein per serving. That makes it 2 servings per recipe.
    Hoping the husband likes it…this is for him.

    • I manually calculate and recalculate the macros of each recipe. With the products I use, I can assure you that the result is correct. What kind of milk have you used? If you used canned coconut milk I can understand why the fat macro is higher. I used the liquid one.

  8. Amazing! I had been craving oatmeal with the weather recently becoming cooler. This tastes delicious and has the same texture as Malt O’Meal. My husband and I both loved it! It also helps that it is very easy to make. This will become a staple in our weekly routine. Thank you!

  9. This turned out great, very similar to a cinnamon malt o' meal. It really hits that warm cereal mark that I was craving since it it's become much colder with winter setting in. Thanks 🙂
